BDS and duplicity
Well may the Sydney University vice chancellor’s spokeswoman insist that ‘’ the University of Sydney is opposed to the BDS.’’
It matters not: they allow the boycott to be warehoused in their Peace and Conflict Studies department through Professors Lynch and Rees.
Whose intelligence are they insulting in the name of Michael Spence – the vice chancellor who is plainly having it both ways.
The Oz: 18/6
A spokeswoman for vice-chancellor Michael Spence repeated the Sydney University's opposition to BDS. "The University of Sydney does not consider the boycott, divestment and sanctions policy appropriate and it is not University of Sydney policy."
The spokeswoman refused to say whether the university would indemnify centre staff or assist them in any other way with legal or financial support if action were launched.
